Kwara State governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed will today launch the State Health Insurance Scheme.
The event will take place at the Kwara State Banquet Hall, according to a statement by Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Communications to the governor, Dr. Muhideen Akorede.
The statement said that the scheme was in line with the state government’s commitment to providing universal health coverage for citizens and residents of the state. It follows Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed’s signing of the Kwara State Health Insurance Agency Bill in 2017.
The bill replaced the highly successful Community Health Insurance Scheme and extends health insurance coverage to all citizens and residents of the state for a low annual premium.
According to the statement, dignitaries expected at the event are the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, the Netherlands Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Robert Petri and Prof. Khama Rogo, who is the Head of World Bank Group in Africa Initiative.
Partners of the scheme include Pharm Access Foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, UKAID, Medical Credit Fund Africa, Safe Care and Grand Challenges Canada.
